UK. This is a quote from the House of Lords where Sayeeda Warsi said:
There have been press reports that Asia Bibi, if granted asylum in the United Kingdom, would potentially not be safe from some communities here… As someone who is deeply connected to British Muslim communities, I assure her that they are fully supportive of any asylum claim that Asia Bibi may have and that our country may afford her, and that she would be supported as she would be by all other communities in this country.
The question is if Warsi is this unknowledgeable or if this is taqqiyaa at work. Asia is fleeing Pakistan and the UK have a large group of Pakistani Muslims. If they have integrated and let go of the views that are common in their home country: why are Pakistanis who convert to Christianity (in the UK) being threatened, attacked and injured by Muslims?
Sayeeda Warsi is a former Tory party chairman who resigned from government in 2014 because she thought that David Camerons Israel-Gaza policy was morally indefensible. Others have described her as having an anti-Israel agenda. Warsi is critical of
the governments de-radicalisation Prevent agenda as it “alienated” Muslims rather than “engage” them.
In 2005 Warsi campaigned against teaching about homosexuality in schools as it “promotes same-sex relationship”. She has apologised for this and now promote the approach that society shouldn’t “police” Muslims who insult women, homosexuals and minorities. Potentially extreme statements should be pardoned as Muslims “make mistakes“. At the same time she want actions against anti-Muslim hate speech and claim that the Tory party is infested with islamophobia.
She was raised to peerage in 2007 and is now the Baroness Warsi of Dewsbury.
